review 1: I enjoyed this book in the beginning. The character was likable and I sympathized with her dating woes. But then she goes to her mother’s house and her internal dialogue becomes downright mean and bitchy. I am not a fan of the insults that get lobbed at people you don’t know. A pick-up truck with a yellow magnetic ribbon does not mean the driver is a country, gun-totting hick. That’s the kind of crap that starts to come from the main character when, in the previous chapter, she left the mean talk to her sidekick.And while I am not a fan of war, I don’t appreciate the author trying to make anyone that willingly enrolls in the military out to be war-mongering idiots. The love interest becomes a truly good man only after denouncing the tenants of military. This is irr... moreitating and just gave me another reason not to like the main character as she constantly made disparaging jokes towards the soldiers who are doing their jobs. I really wanted to stop listening to this book, but I finished it because the love interest was likable. Its just too bad he couldn’t be given a better woman.I’m also getting a little sick of the trope that perpetuates the notion that the man that is for us will be secretly rich and will step forward to make our dreams come true. The story was good and not completely predictable, but the characters are not likable and the political ideologies wrapped into the story line are infuriating. I can half heartedly recommend this title.
review 2: I had no idea what to expect from this book...I am not big on the whole cheating thing and don't care for books that are all about it. This was not the case at all with this book! Though the ending was shocking, this book was adorable and had just the right about of happy, sad, laughter and aww! I really liked that there was a little of everything in this book, family relationships, some food/cooking, humor, lovely romance, tragedy(war)and loss, all things I like to see in a book. I really liked the way this book was done, although some may think parts were dragged out, I looked past those small parts and enjoyed the book for what it was...amazing! less

A fun read, but not great literature. A little too much microinspection of the heroine's feelings.

a very light read... I liked the food parts.
slow start, but great ending
Very good...fun.
